Santo Iolo: “Winter Blues at Santo Iolo”
The colors of the vineyard in the Umbrian countryside winter
It’s a cloudy, cold Saturday morning at Santoiolo and we are here to taste some of the new vintages before they get bottled. Looking around I am amazed with contrast between unexpected colors and the “blues” of days like this.
Alessandra and Pietro Ducoli proudly show me the great work (and the hard work!) just completed in the vineyards with winter pruning. It’s cold outside!
Catching more color contrasts to break our “winter blues”. Winter will soon be over and landscape will change adding new, bright colors.
It’s good to be inside, tasting Santoiolo 2010 just released, the new Rossoiolo 2011, and enjoying the new Pratalia, Vermentino 2013 to be bottled shortly.
